Interactive, Educational Trailer Educates Illinoisans About Warning Signs of Addiction


RALI Illinois has partnered with Code 3 to bring the RALI CARES educational trailer to several stops throughout the state this month. The effort helps educate community members, especially parents, about the warning signs of opioid misuse among teenagers and young adults.

The trailer is set up like a typical teenager's bedroom, which parents and community members can visit to see where possible warning signs of substance misuse may be hidden. It’s a useful tool that can help ensure loved ones get help if they are struggling with addiction.

The free tours are given by law enforcement experts who are also available to discuss resources if participants are concerned about their children after visiting the trailer.

​The RALI CARES trailer is currently scheduled to stop at the following locations in Illinois (additional stops will be added as they are confirmed):
